CALGARY — Wouldn’t it be great if all reviews were done by their subjects rather than an outside critic? Hmm, maybe not, but we genuinely feel our first-ever issue launch party went pretty dang great.
Local 510 was at capacity before the first band started, Bad Animal, Crooked Spies and Matt-tallica (secretly Astral Swans) electrified the room, and only one BeatRoute editor got hauled out at the end of the night for having seven or eight too many Big Rock beverages. Thank you so much to all the bands, Big Rock, Local 510, Reid who made our shirts, and most importantly, everyone who came out. Honestly, your support means the world.
We hope you’ll do the same again in January. We’re locking a date and some pretty special acts for around mid-month – check our social media for an announcement soon. Also, if those BeatRoute baseball tees and sweaters catch your eye, we’ll be selling them exclusively at future parties.AB, Alberta, Astral Swans, Bad Animal, BeatRoute, BeatRoute Issue Launch Party, Crooked Spies, dick fiddler, Local 510, Matt-tallica
